    It happened to me starting January 4th 2009. I put my Yahoo ID and when I put my password, it denies it. I haven't my password in years. I reported to Yahoo security team and now I'm just waiting. I had to send Yahoo a lot of personal information to investigate. Its so frustrating because I'm worried that someone might have stolen my password and changed it. Maybe stolen my identity.

SOMETIMES This happens because somebody tried to make a large amount of attempts to guess your password and enter your account. Many times, it's not actually someone trying to access the account, they just know that by sending a huge amount of requests, they can cause the user problems by having their account closed.
The servers understand that a human can make about 5 or 6 attempts a minute, this would be normal if you had forgotten your password or made a typo etc... and at this rate, it would take 18011 years to guess your password.
An automated program however, could make 1000s of requests a minute or even more! Its when the server experiences these numbers, for your own security, it locks your account.
First, visit Don't Worry! The first attempt will fail, say incorrect password or something. It's the second attempt that matters. What you will see this time, is that you have a word verification. This is a secure system by which only humans could be making the request, bots cannot see the text, they see encrypted numbers.
For some, this is it, the account will log in again! For others, it's not so. You have to wait up to 48hrs for the account to come back.

Access Yahoo, and click "forgot my password".
Correctly answer all the "personal" questions (name of first pet, first middle-school), and then you can reset your password.
